Man Trying to Protect Chickens… Shoots House Hunters… Which Leads to Commercial Promotion of Marijuana and Detrimental Drugs

Detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigation Section have charged a 68-year-old Hilo man in connection with a gunshot that shattered the window of a passing van Tuesday (March 13, 2012) in the Hawaiian Acres subdivision.

At 9:40 p.m. Wednesday, Victor Kwock Chung Chun was charged with first-degree reckless endangering, permit to acquire firearms, second-degree commercial promotion of marijuana, second-degree promotion of a detrimental drug, two counts of first-degree promotion of a detrimental drug and three counts of possessing drug paraphernalia.

Police determined that Chun had been shooting at a dog he suspected of killing chickens at a house on Road 10 when a van with six occupants passed into the line of fire. No one was injured in the shooting.
Police recovered a firearm while executing a search warrant at the house.

Another man, 47-year-old Ivan Okada of Kurtistown, was also arrested but released later Tuesday night pending further investigation.

  1. How is it ok to shoot at a dog? He could have hit someone riding a bike or walking on the road? How unsafe to have a neighbor like this!

  2. Why don’t I believe he was shooting at a dog?
